Reflections of Youth

Courage
By Jenna Baker, Aqsa School

Courage is to stand when others stay sitting down
Courage is to act as you please when others believe you look like a clown
Courage is to speak out when others don’t make a sound
To keep searching for what others believe will remain unfound
To stay hopeful when others are downcast
To keep on moving when others think you are going too fast
To look up and around when others stare straight ahead
To stay on your path when people think you should take another instead
Courage is in everything you do
A small, positive act is considered a courageous one too!
